    She has not taken her hands off me all night.

    Hey guys,

    after a while I've got another question. Having this sentence:

    She has not taken her hands off me all night.


    1) What is the direct object in this sentence?
    2) Supposing her hands is the direct object, what is the personal pronoun me?

    cheers

    1) DO = her hands
    2) IO = me (am I right?)

    that's what i thought. The indirect object, though, is expressed with the interrogative pronoun "to whom" ", "for whom" or potentially "to what" "for what" therefore it misled me.

    Another taker?

    "me" is the object/complment of the preposition "off."

    sorry, can you develop your notion? should it be an object, what type of object? direct, indirect, prepositional...?


    Thank you for the clarification
